I am fascinated with the
opportunities and challenges
involved in creating from
found materials. Using wood
that is raw, weathered, or
flawed in some way, and
then transforming these
qualities through the image,
is a major focus of my work.

I enjoy the beauty in
accepting and working with
these imperfections and in
giving new life to objects
that have been discarded.

Combining distressed wood
canvases with elusive and
radiant figures creates an
unlikely duality. The mood
becomes both peaceful and
haunting, perfect and flawed.
